Rav Tzadok HaCohen on the Passover Haggada: Lesson 1
Class description

In this class we will look at a few different sections of the haggadah and try to understand them more deeply through the eyes of Rav Tzadok HaCohen. We will focus on ‘Ha lachma anya’, ‘mah nishtana’, ‘avadim hayinu’ and possibly more (depending on time available). This is the second of three classes on the haggadah, but you should still attend this class even if you missed the previous one (or the next one) for some reason.
